L'histoire de la marque N2
Just Married
It was Belgian love at first sight for Pascale and Enzo, when they caught each other’s eyes as teenagers at the Academy des Beaux-Arts. She was born in a family of artists, going back three generations, including a grandfather friend with Magritte. He grew up in the heart of a large Italian anti-conformist family. This fusion of two universes, of two passionate photographers took place outside a town hall in the mid 1970s. The young newly weds were keen to satiate their thirst for idealism by bringing their dream and ambition to life.
The Beginning
They drove Enzo’s BMW 750 down to the Côte d’Azur where their lucky star led them to Nice and the perfect venue for a shop. Together they decided to design costume jewelry. Sheer determination did the rest. They moved into town, decorated the shop and immediately started working on their distinct taste for imaginative jewelry. On April 14th 1980 the first Les Néréides boutique opened and on that day success walked through their door.
The Family
Their four children, Nina, Pier-Paolo, Bianca and Valentina have now joined the company. They just love working together. .
N2 THE LITTLE SISTER
Some time after, the Italian-Belgian couple of creator – passionate about jewellery and fashion like the sales team – feels the need to create a new brand. A brand that will allow them to fully enjoy their art and express themselves without any limits, by developing themes each one quirkier than the other. Original and refined collections for vibrant and funny girls with a dash of impertinence… This is how N2 was born in 2004, with the will to open the brand to a younger market by creating more affordable designer jewelry. 10 years and many collaborations later, N2 is a huge hit all over the world and is regularly recognized by fashion professionals.
INSPIRATION
The N2 offbeat universe finds inspiration in its creators’ travels. Collectors and passionate with jewelry, Pascale and Enzo carefully look back and forth at stalls all around the world. From ephemeral India markets to New-York, from Waterloo to Clignancourt or Vanves, going through Thailand, Pascale and Enzo bring from each of their trip treasures. Antique dolls, night-lights, statuettes, vintage jewelry, paintings, books, knickknacks, the emotional value of each object nourishes the plentiful imagination of these artists and will inspire, who knows, an upcoming collection.
